Fosterella penduliflora

Hello again - What a surprise!

I managed to grow a very weak F. peduliflora and it finally flowered, now to my great surprise a seed has grown from the bottom of the pot next door and growing better than ever?

any comments would be appreciated - Cheers Richard

Looks like it has found some prime habitat - maybe the start of a new trend? Just think of all the possibilities for new hanging arrangements!

Sure looks happy there. Do they like to have nice and moist soil like crypts? I would sign up for that trend if my plants would be that happy.

Hi Kez, I dont dare touch it.
It seems to be doing fine on its own.

Hi Richard,

I think it's trying to tell you it likes that part of the mixture the best.

Do you put polystyrene in the bottom of the pot or perhaps a secret new ingredient.

Or is it the accumalated fertilizer in the bottom of the pot or just the dampest part of the potting mix.

Whatever it is, you know what they say ....... "If it's doing well in one position, don't move it to another".

All the best, Nev.
